This is basically a scenic touring trail consisting of about 90% dirt/gravel roads and 10% (recently) paved.
You start by taking a 15 minute truck ride up the side of a mountain to a peak at the top called "the
antennas" (EL 2600'), but that's not the end of your climbing so you need to be in fairly decent shape.
Don't forget, you're at a pretty high altitude as well so the air is a bit thin.
The scenery is simply amazing as you huff and puff your way along an Andean ridgeline eventually
climbing to 3200' and disappearing into the clouds. Your downhill seems to last forever as you cross over a
raging south american river a couple times and eventually get back down to around 1700' feet.
This isn't a technically challenging ride, but it can be strenuous if you're not in fairly decent shape ... and
there are a few annoying dogs on the route so be prepared to deal with them. I don't think there are any
true biters but a couple do seem very aggressive.
